Sorry, I wan not clear

In Starbasic, I have a string variable

dim s$ s = "A25"

So I would like to define a second variable that contain a parte of the string "s"

dim s2$ s2 = "25"

Is there a function that allow to extrapolate "25" from the string "s"? [so s2 = f (s)]

Thank you

s2 = Right( s, 2 ) REM take the last two characters of s.


s2 = Mid( s, 2 )    REM take all characters from s, starting at the second character.
